  1. He’s been there with WCBS hasn’t he? I don’t think he’s wanna go back
  2. While it would be cool I feel like it would be over the top and almost unnecessary to add Jim to the anchor line up. They have a strong enough line up as it is. Could a possibility be David to mornings, Jim at 5 and then Mike noon and 4 until it’s time for Bill?
  3. Maybe he gets the 5 and takes some load off Bill Ritter? I can’t see him as a “long term” replacement for Bill.
  4. Something I don’t get about WABC (while minuscule) is up until Ken got fired they ran the Friday Morning talent open.. and they run the Friday noon open.. even tho Sam is off Fridays.. last Sunday I was watching I don’t believe they ran a talent open now that Ryan does sports Sundays.. I’m not sure about Fridays at 6 I haven’t seen it lately. Not something the average viewer would notice but just a little irk lol
  5. Interesting.. they seem to update/get new sets more than any other station in NYC.. how long have they been on their current one?
  6. One thing that’s nice to see (besides anchor pairings we normally don’t) is seeing specific people anchor that might normally not.. Janice Yu has been anchoring Friday mornings and some weekends. Today was Chantee Lans with Michelle.. nice to see
  7. I can definitely see that. There was never chemistry like he had with Lori. Sandra seems like the “work mom” that everyone loves. Everyone seemed to have liked Ken as a person it’s sad that it ended this way. Sadly it’s not likely but I wonder if anyone will pick him up at some point
  8. Todays anchor pairings so far: Morning: Mike and Sandra 4: David and Michelle 5: Regular crew
  9. https://pagesix.com/2023/05/15/abc-7-anchor-allegedly-used-vulgar-word-for-co-anchor/?utm_medium=SocialFlow&utm_campaign=SocialFlow&utm_source=NYPFacebook&sr_share=facebook&fbclid=IwAR1ehlOztZicK2KWT6ZYfHAjdUZUgMyVgLjORY51_4oyFuvlQw3kuq8s5Tc if we’re going by this the c word was used about Shirleen
  10. So not to speculate but who do we think gets the spot? I really hope it’s (finally) Michelle. And do we actually expect an anchor shuffle like mentioned above or will it just be to replace the openings.. One last thing.. for example like David Novarro does the noon and 4.. would a morning show spot be considered a “promotion” being that it’s a more viewed time than the early afternoon shows?
  11. According to a post above it doesn’t seem like it’s just gonna be a slide in move. Looks like there might be more.
  12. Hopefully Michelle finally gets a weekday anchor spot.
  13. It SEEMS as if WABC is testing some different anchor pairings. Today I guess Liz is off.. I’m not sure who anchored at 4 but Sandra and Sade did the 5:00 show. Bill who is not off did not off did the 6:00 show solo. I noticed too a few weeks ago when Bill did the evening shows that he did not do the 11 and Mike Marza was on.
  14. Yes it absolutely does, he shows clear bias.
  15. That’s exactly it. FOX5 used to do Lews View and clearly label it.. I believe WPIX too used to do something similar.. Bill just interjects and shows clear bias.
  16. Does anyone know who anchored at 4 yesterday? Sandra and Joe did the 5 and did EXCELLENT with the breaking news (as expected) Liz and Joe at 6 again excellent Not sure about the 11.. I might be a little bias here cause I’m not a huge fan of Bill Ritter but it was so nice seeing some different faces on there and not throwing in any sort of comments just straight and to the point.
  17. Naveen Dhaliwal has joined WCBS-TV
  18. I guess it depends.. you had Eileen Lapalmer (not sure of spelling) go right to WPIX.. Anthony Carlo right to WABC..
  19. They used to do it all the time like this then it seemed to have stopped for a while
  20. The other day when Star Harvey posted the new set she said something along the lines of other changes coming that she “couldn’t talk about yet” I wonder if she moves to weekday mornings or does at least part of the week?
  21. Star Harvey posted as well. Looks like maybe possibly the interview area across from the weather area.. also posted “I’ll have more news to share in a few weeks”
  22. Anthony Carlo (am anchor) had left news 12 the Bronx.. he posted “I’ll be seeing you soon” or something like that.. I guess he’s headed to one of the city channels.
  23. Not too sure. I only saw the first few minutes and last few minutes of the show. Hopefully we’ll see tonight
  24. Looks like WABC has ended social distancing with anchors like all other stations and is back to having their anchors in “pre-pandemic” seating
  25. Anyone know what’s going on with Sade? She hasn’t been on at 5 but has been on at 11.
